Perhaps its a means of population control. Maybe they are trying to cut back the population growth (in an attempt to fix the national debt, over crowding, global warming, and the federal public assistance issue) they are just taking a more humane approach than say, China, where they actually kill the babies.
I think perhaps they should work on the education system. Improve that and you lower the teenage pregnancy rate, thus reducing the negative areas of rapid population growth. (the areas that put major stress on the economy, teens and women living in poverty) And believe me, i am not condeming anyone for anything here (except the government) but I was a teen mom and I have very strong feelings on the subject!
But those of us who work their asses off day in and day out cant catch a break when we decide we want to fulfil our biological duty and excercize our natural right as women to bear children.
